The street was closed from the junction with Rosebury Avenue to allow room for an air ambulance, piloted by HRH Prince William, to land.

EEAST has this morning confirmed to the LBO that the nine-year-old girl was treated for life-threatening injuries, including a broken pelvis and broken legs, and was airlifted to Addenbrookes Hospital.

She remains in a critical condition.

A second girl was also involved in the collision but sustained only minor injuries.
